    Wow, nice work!

    Just ordered all the hoses and fittings from Surplus Center tonight.
    Hopefully I didn't miss anything.
    I even ordered extra fittings and couplers for spare parts.
    Prices seemed very reasonable at Surplus Center.

    Fabricated a new mount for the front hydraulic outlets.

    That looks good. When I did my grapple I was surprised how Long it took to get the hydraulics sorted out. Merry Christmas! Maybe you'll use that grapple to take the Christmas tree to the burn pile!

    Thanks.
    I took a couple of weeks vacation and will have some time to tinker with the hydraulics.
    X-mas tree?
    That would be another good use!
    Always looking for reasons to fire up the tractor.
    Just loaded my large Argon tank in the back of the truck with the FEL.
    Darn I will probably have to fire it up again when I get home and unload the full tank.
    Merry Christmas!

    Well my order arrived today but it was goofed up a little.
    I accidentally ordered some SAE 8 fittings instead of SAE 6.
    They accidentally sent me some SAE 4 fittings instead of SAE 6.
    Well once we sorted out the order David @ Surplus Center is putting a rush on my new order with the correct items and paying for shipping both ways.
    Could not ask for better service than that.
    I did have some parts to work with and will be doing what i can until the rest of the order gets here.
    I need to fabricate a bracket to hold the quick connectors near the bucket and will start on that next.
